Stephen Ross Dooley

Hailing from the Midwest, Steve knew at an early age that winemaking was his passion. After graduating from U.C. Davis in 1977, Steve's adventures in wine making began. He started out in the cellar at Napa Valley's Louis Martini Winery (one of the early pioneers of today's California wine industry) shoveling pomace out of fermentation tanks and shortly thereafter became assistant winemaker.
After 10 educative years at Martini, and winemaking stints in South Africa and Australia, Steve was hired by the Chalone Wine Group as winemaker at Edna Valley Vineyard. In 1994, after seven years at Edna Valley, Steve left to form Stephen Ross. His easy going yet inquisitive and hard working nature enables him to consistently produce delicious, balanced nuanced wines.
